BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that older people can experience a considerable change in their physical performance (PP) over time. OBJECTIVES: To identify PP trajectories and their association with mortality among nursing home residents who were followed up for 3 years. DESIGN: Three-year longitudinal observational study. SETTING: Subjects of the SENIOR cohort. SUBJECTS: Six hundred and four nursing home residents with a mean age of 82.9 +/- 9.1 years. METHODS: Baseline characteristics...
A 70-year-old patient was admitted with rapidly progressive cognitive decline associated with limitations in activities of daily living, weight loss and cerebellar ataxia. The diagnosis of giant cell arteritis (GCA) with vascular involvement was made, based on the presence of a metabolically active vasculitis of the brachiocephalic trunk on 18FDG-PET imaging. Temporal artery biopsy also revealed pan-arteritis. A progressive regression of cognitive disorders occurred under corticosteroid treatmen...

Statins are widely prescribed in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. While their efficacy in the secondary prevention of vascular events is proven, their safety profile in older patients with multiple co-morbidities and polypharmacy remains questionable. Although rare, antihydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (anti-HMGCR) myopathy is a severe adverse effect of statins, manifesting as myalgias, proximal muscle weakness, muscle cell necrosis and rhabdomyolysis. We report an uncommon ca...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: older adults have increased risk of social isolation, loneliness and cognitive functioning impairment, but the relationships among these factors are not conclusive. We investigated the potential mediation mechanism of loneliness on the association between social isolation and cognitive functioning among Chinese older adults within their cultural context. DESIGN: secondary analysis of the baseline wave (2011-12) of the harmonised China Health and Retirement Longitudinal ...
The world population is ageing because of falling fertility and improved life expectancy. Knowing this has not helped governments develop sustainable health and care policies because the underlying causes and impacts of population ageing remain poorly understood. Planning using only population age structure does not account for uneven geographical distribution of older people, their health characteristics, functional needs or lived experiences. English National Health Service (NHS) policy has pr...

BACKGROUND: Data on drug utilisation patterns in nursing home populations is scarce. We aimed to describe drug use patterns in Danish nursing home residents. METHODS: We established a cohort of 5,179 individuals (63% women; median age of 84 years) admitted into 94 nursing homes across Denmark during 2015-2017. Data on prescription drug use and other census data were obtained from the nationwide Danish health registries. RESULTS: The total number of drug classes filled increased from a median of ...

OBJECTIVE: to develop a model to predict one patients with dementia attending a hospital, through hospital admission or day/memory clinic. DESIGN: we constructed a cohort of dementia patients through data linkage of three Dutch national registers: the hospital discharge register (HDR), the population register and the national cause of death register. SUBJECTS: patients with dementia in the HDR aged between 60 and 100 years registered between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2010. METHODS: logistic...

BACKGROUND: we investigated trends of traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related hospitalisations, deaths, acute neurosurgical operations (ANO), and lengths of hospital stay (LOS) in patients aged >/=70 years in Finland using a population-based cohort. METHODS: nationwide databases were searched for all admissions with a TBI diagnosis as well as later deaths for persons >/=70 years of age during 2004-2014. RESULTS: the study period included 20,259 TBI-related hospitalisations (mean age = 80.7 years, m...

Background Older workers experiencing chronic health conditions (CHCs) are more likely to retire early. The different pathways through which CHCs stimulate retirement preferences, however, remain largely unexplored. Objective We present a more comprehensive model in which we test the different pathways through which four specific CHCs—arthritis, cardiovascular disease, sleep disorders and psychological disorders—influence early retirement preferences. We hypothesize that the association between ...
